Intricate Sgraffito

Step 1: Cover the leather hard pot with colored slip or underglaze.

Step 2: Wait for the slip/underglaze to dry

Step 3: Plan out desired design with a pencil (no worries! The charcoal will burn off in the kiln!)

Step 4: Carve out desired design with a carving tool (I used the PF1 carving tool from Diamond Core Tools) or a ball stylus. 

Step 5: Brush off hanging clay bits with a soft paintbrush.
